New Weight Loss Plan for Americans

One easy step to help Americans lose weight — don’t take the car to the grocery store. (Or, if you live in the country, park 1/4 to 1/2 mile away from the grocery store.)

I’ve been thinking about why I always seem to lose weight when I live overseas, and I have come up with two main reasons: 1) I walk more; and 2) I can only buy as much from the grocery store as I can comfortably carry over a distance of about 1/4 to a 1/2 mile.

Because we can’t carry very much, we have to shop every day, which means we get at least a mile of walking in on a daily basis just through the act of buying food!! On top of that, we are very picky about what we actually purchase because we have to carry it, so lunch food for the girls and dinner fixings take precedence.

Bottom line, there’s just a lot less food in the house.

Now, I’m heading to the table to eat some Oreos (I never said I was a saint)!!!

    I never really considered that no car = less food, but its a good point! I suppose technically we could have Disco deliver to our house, but I don’t know if I trust my meat and milk sitting in the hot sun that long.

    I know Sara and I are loosing weight on this plan, I recommend it to anyone.

    I saw a disco delivery guy lose a tower of delivery cartons down a ramp, they dumped everywhere…I just can’t do the delivery thing! Maybe with non perishables, but then, what’s the point!
